Great news! Bocas del Toro coastal home finished in 2022!
Made to almost US standards, this home is just under 1,000 square feet inside plus 500 square feet of decking. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, on a single floor. It has everything you need to live here full or part-time.
With almost 2 waterfront ROP acres (NO property taxes) there is plenty enough privacy and room for your dog to run around while the dock and 150 feet of waterfront give you a place to park your boat and swim. Located in Tierra Oscura, it is actually part of the mainland Panama and currently has boat and road access! This land is as nice as the house. It is hard and usable land that is becoming hard to find in Bocas. No mangrove trees on this property, so no sand flies Constant ocean breezes mean no AC needed. There is plenty of space in the back of the property for another house or cabins...which may be smart because the under construction road will bring clients from the bigger cities.
This area is called Tierra Oscura because the land is so fertile and any fruits and veggies suitable for the tropical climate will grow here. The property has over 100 banana trees, plantains, coconuts, citrus, mangos, yuca, dasheen, guava, sloths, monkeys, parrots, red frogs, and more. The views are fantastic as you can see from the photos.
A comfortable 30-minute boat ride to Bocas or 20 minutes to Almirante for supplies and gas. The home is new and never actually lived in, so all of your solar system, septic, rainwater catchment and generator systems are worry free. Almost 3,000 watts of solar and 2,750 gallons of water. Your new Expat family in this area will embrace you and you will find friendships easy to make and plenty of social events to go to should you so choose.
Great house at a great price (mostly furnished), be sure and make time to view when you come to Bocas del Toro for your real-estate Tour with United Country.
Whether you want to buy a personal house or build a hotel, considering real estate that has great tropical weather, fish, monkeys, dolphins, sloths and beautiful parrots with crystal-clear water is great. But let’s but aside that and the possibility for more freedom and lower cost of living for a minute. Imagine investing in the timing of an area of tropical islands that currently has so little infrastructure that entire islands run off generators, the roads are barely even roads, very little water or sewer systems, only 1 bank, the small airport only receives small planes, the locals speak English and us USD but the average salary is only a few hundred dollars a month…yet somehow attracts tens of thousands of tourists each year.
Now, imagine the government has new airport, roads, infrastructure planned, and work has just begun. Sounds like one of those stories about the right place at the right time that you tell your kids right?
This is exactly the opportunity you have right now in Bocas del Toro.
